Ever feel lost in a sea of search engines? Clouded by the spider bots of Google search? Well, today I want to explore an alternative method of searching for the content you want, and leaving out all the content you do not want. In this session I will be exploring the application TweetDeck which organizes your twitter accounts/hash tags/topics and puts it into one clean interface! OK, so here is my experience with TweetDeck and how that relates to you!
As you can see I have all my columns organized, with only the most relevant information from my Twitter account being updated and streamed into each column. What is refreshing about this alternative to search engines is two things:
1) It is set up so that I do not need to constantly go to my search engine to find the information I want. Here, after the initial input of hash tags, accounts, topics and more, the work has been done and I can sit back and enjoy the relevant content that will be streamlined directly too me.
2) It is exactly that of relevant. Not to say that google or the other “great” search engines of today cannot provide relevant information but what I am trying to say is that this application acts like a very precise screening process that ONLY allows information to be presented to you if it meets your strict and fairly rigid criteria (IE. one hash tag, or one topic).
Tweet deck cannot do what Google or Yahoo may be able to do in terms of depth or reach in the content it provides you but what it can do is simplify your search process and streamline the most relevant information that you have chosen right to your application.
Fancy right? Not at all. Give it a try here!
That is all for now!
